Make history come alive in Normandy.

Witness history come alive as we invite you to join our immersive D-Day Experience from June 5th to June 7th, 2024, and step back in time to the D-Day landings of June 6th, 1944.

Eighty years ago, amidst the chaos of war, Second Lieutenant Gilbert Jones, grasped a handful of sand from the shores of Juno Beach. This June, Dan Searson, his grandson, will lead an expedition team to return the sand to its rightful place, honouring his grandfather and the soldiers who valiantly fought for freedom.

Together, we will then pay homage to those who served, as we visit key WW2 memorials dotted along the Normandy coastline.

The journey will culminate in an evening of reflection and camaraderie, as we join members of the core expedition team to light the Lamp Lights of Peace on all 5 beaches.

Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of history.
